any chance for a hotswap version and without the logos in the  top ?

We updated hotswap for IKKI68, and name badge is optional, you can choose to have it or not.

So if there is no badge, it will just be empty space? any renders for this?
Yes, no badge. That place is blank

Not sure about the branding near the keys. Who are the proxies?

Do you mean the name bages or the "W"? Name badge is optional, and the small w can be seen only when lights up. We are not using proxy.

The W.

You can see it when turning on its light (not the backlight but lighting speacially for it). Will share video of it like next week :)

I like the design except for the logo above the right arrow key. Can it be placed somewhere else?

I am afraid not....

Edited: you can only see it when its light is on. You can turn off its light seperately.

The platinum in the coronation render looks more like gold than it does platinum.

I think e-white with gold would be awesome. What finish will the platinum in coronation look like? Will it be grayish-whitish-silver or will it be closer to gold?

I really like the design. I'll definitely want to get a hotswap wired version.
do you know the approximate weight of the keyboard? Is there any option for other plate material? Or just carbon fibre. Thanks

Nice design, but way too much branding. Would remove all of them on the top and on the back, keep the logo on the weight. Would look much cleaner.

Name badge is optional now, other letters were taken away.

Check out the no name badge version from the Forest protptype in this albums https://imgur.com/a/wC0SdnA

I'm concerned that the bluetooth PCB might have connectivity issues if the entire case is solid aluminum. Is there something I'm missing in here?

Hmm, will discuss with the team and let you know more details!

Usually a keyboard like 87% there is less than USD30, so I guess it will be more or less in Aug or Sep. for a 2 kg kit.

If you do not use backlit, it can last for about 3 months. You can plug in a type-c cable to recharge it.
